Odd Fellows Building and Lawrence Opera House
c. 1885 O.A. Kenefick

Odd Fellows Building and Lawrence Opera House

Lawrence, MA

Looking westerly from the intersection of Essex and Lawrence Streets, this photograph shows firefighters testing an extension ladder near the clock tower of the Odd Fellow’s Building, then the tallest structure on Essex Street. Constructed in 1875, it survived modifications until a 1941 fire destroyed the building. The Opera House is just after that. The open space beyond was filled in later years by the Central Building.
